ART

March 26 - April 17, 2021

An artistic farce by Yasmine Reza, Translated by Christopher Hampton

Directed by Karla Brandau

Marc's friend, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It's about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn't have the proper standard to judge the work. Their friend, Ivan, despite his own existential issues, is pulled into this disagreement.  Is it art?  Why would Serge pay so much money for this?  The friends hilariously badger each other and at the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: "Go on." This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.
